Bollywood 2013: Top 10 Highest First Week Collections

After a poor start to the year with only one clean hit (Jolly LLB) and one huge disappointment (Himmatwala) in Q1 2013, the second quarter began well with Chashme Baddoor striking box-office gold. Other Bollywood releases in April like Nautanki Saala, Commando and Ek Thi Daayan were ‘plus’ films.

Quite surprisingly, the first runaway ‘blockbuster’ of the year was Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2, which collected 35.45 crore in it’s first week at the Indian box office. Although the film released on just 1100 screens, the collections were only 8% lower than Himmatwala which released on 3000+ screens and had a ‘A-list’ superstar like Ajay Devgan.

Top 10 Highest Week 1 Collections in 2013

  • Race 2 – 69.6 crore
  • Special 26 – 39.8 crore
  • Himmatwala – 38.7 crore
  • Aashiqui 2 – 35.45 crore
  • Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola – 30.2 crore
  • Chashme Baddoor – 29.2 crore
  • Any Body Can Dance – 25.91 crore

  • Aashique 2 has proved again that the screen count alone or the presence of A-list superstar in a film does not mean huge business.

    Srk fan:Rs 2 from begging on the streets+Rs 50 of srk’s underwear+… on.

  • akshay injured on the sets of encounter

    Akshay Kumar’s next, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again, is almost complete and ready for an Eid release. However, work has slowed down on the few portions yet to be shot after the actor injured himself while shooting for another project, forcing him to rest. A source close to the actor

    reveals, “Akshay started work on a film, which is tentatively titled Pistol and is being directed by AR Murugadoss of Ghajini (2008) fame. The movie is full of action sequences and Akshay got injured while performing a stunt that involved him running down a flight of stairs and jumping. In the process, he ended up twisting his ankle.”
    The source adds that he was in a lot of pain and the shoot was stopped immediately. However, he insisted on completing the scene as there was some issue with permissions for the location. He was to resume shooting the following day, but has been advised against it.

    “There’s no amount of preparation or training that can brace you for an accident. A fall is a fall, but the good news is that at least I didn’t fall from the sixth floor where I started my stunt,” says Akshay.

    The actor, however, is happy that he’s recovering fast. He says, “I’m a lucky man. Thanks to the crowd that cheered me on, I felt less pain, and was able to finish my stunt before dashing off to the hospital to scan my injured foot. I have a big climax scene to complete next week, so I really have no time for pain.”

    He adds that he’s practically living with his foot in an ice bucket these days. Akshay says, “It’s the cheapest, fastest and most natural way to recover from any injury.”

  • @dinesshh You sorry pathetic excuse for a human being- You havent answered my question but Im gonna take the high road and leave your parents alone. I love them more than you love them, I now love them more than my own folks and clearly I now love them more than you do…! :-)
    Must be hard for them, having to endure your stupidity for life and tolerate your total lack of respect for any values all this time speaks very well of them- they certainly are alot more tolerant of the indefensible than most people I know so my deepest most sincerest respects go out to them…! :-)
    You on the other hand suck as a human being and you now join Rishi in my ‘not so nice peoples’ list but I will let you 2 clowns carry on recklessly until a time I see fit to sort out your accounts. Chennai Depress is nearing release so up until that time Im focusing all my efforts on those joker boys ‘Damn’, ‘remotecontrol’ and ‘[email protected]’ etc etc. Enjoy your miserable life you ungrateful sod and refrain from doing anything else that can become total embarrassment to your great parents- they deserve better than you…! ;-)


  • @soroop Great story but for the record when you have a supposedly intelligent conversation with a bhai fan then make sure its not a joker calling himself ‘beingsallufan’…! That clown is very much a Srk fan and his intelligence only just beats your very own level…
    2 srk fans discuss boxoffice numbers,
    ‘remotecontrol’ brings the India collections figures.
    ‘soroop’ brings the Worldwide Collections figures.
    Now both argue about how to work out the very important ‘Overseas’ figure.
    ‘remotecontrol’ wants to multiply the numbers together.
    ‘soroop’ simply wants to add the figures together.
    Then ‘john cena fan’ arrives and says:- “hey guys You Cant See Me and this overseas figure, why dont we add together the figures and then add the number of screens and the number of shows and call that the overseas figure???”
    Both ‘remotecontrol’ and ‘soroop’ say:- “What a brilliant idea our brother wearing short pants.”
    Before the party can start ‘IMAM’ arrives:- “Hey before you publish the data, let me bless the figures with my home made holy water and to give you guys credit, let me publish the figure during my next sadistic press release and tell the world I got this figure from my highly reliable sources in the
    Afghan mountains…!”


  • saroop srk is nothing.just seeing overseas we cannot call him king. and INCLUDING INDIA+OVERSEAS dabangg2 and ek tha tiger has better collectionthan alll srk over alll ling is salman.


  • soroop, even in trp salman is ahead of srk bodyguard, dabangg.salman is most search bollywood actor on google.salman is also voted higher than srk in most sexiest man in asia. salman is ahead of srk in almost everything now.


  • @DANISH, thnx. I have given net collection of each SRK and salman films.
    2010 – SRK leading
    2011 – SRK leading
    2012 – salman leading
    But trade, medias, salman fans, haters only talk abt INDIA’s collection and exaggerate. But truth is SRK was leading untill 2011. I have given everything with PROOF.


  • @spot boy. I took from, which we everyone follow. The collection which i given is not gross collection, infact it’s net collection. That’s why u got confused Mr. KING (of idiot world )


  • @Navin. I dunno why ur spreading so much foolishness. Bollywood is not just for indian people. Bollywood films are for every bollywood lover. Trade and salman fans can boast off indian collection. Leave india collection and overseas collection behind and take films total earning i to consideration then u will find sharukh khan ruled untill 2011, its a fact. Salman is ahead in 2012, just for 1 year?!


  • I think by the end of the year, Race 2 won’t be in top 5. There are too many big released coming up.

    Although Salman might not have a movie releasing at the end of the year, there’s Aamir, SRK, HR, and Akshay. Even Ranbhir’s YJHD can overtake Race 2. And I hope like Kahaani, Ghanchakkar will also be a super hit :)


  • @boss No doubt srk allways king of oversease and sultan of bollywood more than 20year. Boss col more than ouatim2 as it solo release and great action and universal apple. Ouatim2 clash with bollywood badsha film remember king khan and rohit combo, and ouatim2 is an adult content gangstar film like shoot out at wadala.
